Hello year 5!
This term we have talked a lot about wizards, magic and potions so we thought you might like to have a go at making a potion too. Miss Harris has recorded a tutorial on how to make a fizzy, foaming potion.
You will need the following items and to watch the video on the Sway – https://sway.office.com/tSfZbQuO6NxdgfDL?ref=Link&loc=play
- A plastic cup or glass (a clear one is best so you can see what is happening!)
- Bicarbonate of soda
- Washing Up Liquid
- Vinegar (lemon juice works just as well if you don’t want to use vinegar)
- Food colouring – this is optional
- Something to mix your food colouring with – I used a straw but the handle of a wooden spoon would work well (just bare in mind that if you use food colouring it might stain the spoon!)
Happy potion making!
